Château de Santenay is one of the largest wine-producing estates in Burgundy. This prestigious property, consisting of the Château with its remarkable glazed tile roof and a 98 hectare vineyard, is the fruit of an ancient heritage intimately linked to the history of wine production in Burgundy.

Philippe le Hardi (Philip the Bold) son of King Jean le Bon of France (John the Good) was the most illustrious owner of Château de Santenay. A brilliant politician, Philippe le Hardi began a magnificent chapter in the history of Burgundy, founding the Valois of Burgundy dynasty, which would reign for over a century.

Assembled over the course of the twentieth century, through various purchases and inheritances, the estate consists of a mosaic of plots on the Côte d'Or and the Côte Chalonnaise. Thanks to this diversity of "climats"(small plots of vines) the château produces a wide variety of wines whose nuances and subtlety result from the unique geology. Aware of its rich history, CA Grands Crus, the estate's current owner, has undertaken an ambitious investment policy that will preserve the noble character of this unique heritage site. This respect for original values, authenticity, tradition and the château's special features is combined with an ongoing insistence on quality.
